11:19pm
little bit earlier this afternoon. yep, of course everybody down there warned not to look directly at it. that is amazing. i've only seen a few of these in my lifetime, one of which i was in the third grade over there in berks center. that is kwiet amazing on that day. out there today, we saw a high temperature of 65 degrees. you look at that number and say it didn't feel like 65. that was actually just after midnight about 24 hours ago, the low was 43. the new low is now sitting at 40 degrees. that's where we sit currently out at the airport at 13 miles an hour. so between last night at 12:30 and tonight and 11:30 or about 11:30, that is a 25 degree temperature drop. gaithersburg below or at the freezing mark. winchester, 36. 40 in fredericksburg. the warm spots, right along the bay. radar? no rain to show you. we're not going to be seeing any
11:20pm
chance of rain over the next couple of days. our storm system that gave us the rain and the sleet very early this morning has moved out of here. what you're looking at is clear skies and some cold air. notice these clouds here? this is really cold air that continues to make its way down from the north in through parts of pittsburgh, areas like that. so the cold air is here. but breezy conditions, that's what we saw earlier today. starting to settle down just a little bit, but even a five mile an hour wind will give you a little windchill. we will see sunshine tomorrow and plenty of it before we start to see some clouds from the south. still going to be rather school. then, turn your temperatures down to the south. we're going to go mostly cloudy during the day on thursday. a coastal storm will develop on friday. this one will move out to see. we'll see more clouds on thursday and friday. the next coastal storm, however, could have big implications from washington through philly up through new york. one more time, it could also have some problems out there on the roadways, especially i-95
11:21pm
and those coastal areas over the next few days, too. we're going to be talking about that the next few days. clear and cold tomorrow morning. coat wills be needed. and, for some, it's everything you've got. the coat, the gloves, the scarf, the hats, it's going to be cold. tomorrow afternoon, even with some sunshine. north winds at 10-15. that's going to make it feel even colder. if you can stay in the sunshine, that's the best place to be. saturday, a high of 54. we'll see partly to mostly cloudy skies each day. and then, again, watching that coastal storm that could bring us rain and wind on sunday, monday and possibly into tuesday. could be some travel implications there if you're thinking about taking off. next week is thanksgiving. next week is thanksgiving.

in the people, businesses, and organizations that call greater washington home. whether it's funding an organization that provides new citizens with job training, working with an anacostia school that promotes academic excellence, or supporting an organization that serves 5,000 meals a day across d.c., what's important to the people of greater washington is important to us, and we're proud to work with all those

11:25pm
individual awards are just piling up, right-hand turn they? >> first, bryce harper adds the national rookie honor. and ten the n.l. manager of the year. >> this award is really nice. but i look more as an organizational award because the family has done a great job. rizzo and staff, they do an outstanding -- we've had great drafts. the other players really stepped in when key players got hurt with michael morris and storen went down and my catcher went down. and everybody really produced. it was just a remarkable year. actually, i didn't think they overachieved, they just played at their ability. >> so a great season for the
11:26pm
nationals, a terrible season for their division foes, the miami mar lirks ns. the marlins have reportedly agreed to send jose raus, mark burley and john buck to toronto. yeah, that's a big trade. meanwhile, in the nba, the wizards down in charlotte looking for their first win of the season and they layed an egg. this might have been the most painful part for everybody. a contortionist who can evidently deal with all kinds of pain. we need a replay. watch this. no, look, how do you do that? i have no idea how he handles that pain. hopefully, we'll be able to show that to you again tomorrow. >> must have been a special wardrobe thing. >> you know what? i didn't even think about that fact. this was not a good game for the wizards. mar ter martel webster knocks one down.
11:27pm
the guards shot 6 for 37 in this game. too much bob cats. wizards fall 92-76. they drop to 0 and 6 on the year. and this was a loss that left head coach andy whitman searching for answers. we just, you know, we play with no concept of rhyme or reason, understanding what's going on. the concept of the game. that display, offensively, in terms of trying to do everything on your own, we don't have a player on the team that we can do that with. >> isn't it amazing. more college basketball here. virginia taking on delaware and this was not a good night for virginia. they're down by two, evan nolte for the win. the cavs first after they were up 6-4. but after that basket, delaware
11:28pm
respond with an 8-0 run capped off by this little step back. that's pretty from the pride of aberdeen, maryland. virginia drops to 1 and 2 on the season. davy johnson looks so rested and relaxed. >> didn't he. >> six games into the season. oh, man. it's going to be a long one. >> you know you're in trouble when your halftime entertainment is really faster than the ball game.
